. >> kathleen sebelius defending her action to keep the site live. delaying the law might cost us more than we think. joining me is former aetna ceo ronald williams and former very month governor and medical doctor howard dean. good to have you on the program. good to see you. >> consumers seem to have sticker shock. a new survey found the number one reason people didn't enroll on the exchange was not because of the technical glitches but weren't sure if they can even afford the play. if people feel they cannot afford it and decide not to go into the system, can obama care still work? >> first of all, i don't think that's true. i think with the tax subsidies people will afford the plan. most of the policies people are saying are getting canceled are not real policies, they're the kinds you pay $50 a month and get your insurance canceled if you get sick. people don't have a perspective. i think this is going to work. i don't believe we ought to delay this. we ought to try to work the kinks out. >> a lot of people have come on the show and said to me they were paying $200 and now they have to pa

? probably the one occupied by health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. she was grilled wednesday by a house committee in a hearing that occasionally was just downright weird. >> toto, we're not in kansas anymore. >> i was in the third grade there, and i thought i saw you on a tricyle. >> ever used a coupon? >> four pinocchios. >> the sky is falling. >> don't do this to me. >> none of that is about getting health care. that's about getting re-elected and some kind of political parlor game in washington. there's a reason it got to wacky because you can't reduce something as complicated of the affordable care act to a bumper sticker. the president has even tried to do this. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> as we saw, that's turning out to not be true. for some americans, especially those who buy on the individual market. so the president is getting a bit more specific lately. >> if you had one of these substandard plans before the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to kee

of the republican party, and then the obamacare website fiasco comes in, president obama and kathleen sebelius has not handled this well. they have not given us the numbers who had signed up. president obama has backed down on his promise that people wouldn't lose their insurance plans, and would be able to stay with their own doctors. does the democratic party have to be worried seeing what's happened today? >> yeah, simply because in both new jersey and virginia obama's popularity has really sunk, specifically since four years ago just after he got elected. obama is not a popular figure right now. his national poll ratings are below 40% for the first time ever. he's unpopular in virginia. he's unpopular in new jersey. christie took advantage that have, ken cuccinelli could not do it. what it says to the democrats is that you're in trouble, democrats, but the only thing you have to rely on is the ability for republicans to commit suicide. >> the gallop tracking poll has president obama's approval rating down near his all-time low at 39%. jim, your reaction to what bill just said? >> well, i mean,
